Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Statutory Exemption
Type, Section or Code
CEQA Guidelines Section 15183
Reasons for Exemption
The project is within the scope of development projected under the General Plan and analyzed in the General Plan EIR. The project would not result in substantial changes or involve new information that would warrant further environmental review because the level of development proposed is within the development assumptions analyzed in the program level EIR for the General Plan, and furthermore, the project does not contain elements that are peculiar to the project or project site that would result in new or more severe environmental impacts relative to the General Plan EIR. The project will implement applicable mitigation measures identified in the General Plan EIR to address potential environmental impact and these have been incorporated as environmental conditions of project approval. In addition, the project is required to comply with applicable conditions of approval from planning, building, public works, fire, police, and other City departments as applicable. With implementation of identified conditions of approval and uniformly applied development standards, the project would not result in a substantial increase in the severity or significant impacts that were previously identified in the program level EIR, nor would the project introduce any new significant impacts that were not previously identified. There would be no additional environmental impacts beyond those analyzed in the General Plan EIR, and therefore the project is exempt pursuant to California Public Resources Code Section 21083.3 and CEQA Guidelines Section 15183.
